I think we still need one more
We have some awesome 4th and 5th graders at Andover that are looking for a new Sunday School teacher. Pastor Jim has been teaching this class, but needs to step down in order to take care of other things during the Sunday School hour.
We have 3 volunteers as of Tuesday. Thanks to those who immediately stepped up!!! If you are interested in serving in this way or want more information, please talk to Hannah Wittenburg or Pastor Jim.

Wonderfully Made Event – Feb 9 and 10
Help preteens learn they are wonderfully made with this faith and sexuality education program. The Wonderfully Made retreat is a fantastic resource that will help children ages 10-12 understand their bodies, the changes they are going through, and how God loves them now and always. First Church is sponsoring this incredible moment and will be partnering with our District and several other churches in the area. See Joy Nichols for more information.
We have needs for altar flower sign ups. If you enjoy the flowers in the front of the sanctuary and would like to contribute, please check the poster(s) in the back of the sanctuary. As always you can honor or remember someone. The cost is $55. You can pay by check and place it in the offering plate. Please write altar flowers on the memo line.
